Veteran sports writer Norman Giller has drawn up his own top-50 sports journalists list in response to the news that Press Gazette is creating a new sports top-50 to be published in the autumn edition of our news magazine Press Gazette – Journalism Quarterly.
Norman has opted for a chronological list starting with Frank Butler of the News of the World running through to Matthew Syed at The Times.
His all-time favourites are: Ian Wooldrige and Hugh McIllvanney (joint top), followed by George Whiting, Peter Wilson and Geoffrey Green.
The pack leaders so far in Press Gazette’s contemporary list are: Henry Winter, Simon Barnes, Martin Samuel, David Walsh, Paul Kimmage and Des Kelly.
